A much improved, widescreen copy of Antonio Margheriti's first Italian space opera, "Assignment Outer Space," also known as "Spacemen." The claim made in the Wikipedia article below that this film was released on a triple bill with "First Spaceship on Venus" and "The Mysterians" is a fantasy. It was originally released with "Phantom Planet," and was (arguably) the better film on that double bill. This film is interesting for having a black...

This is the 75 minute TV version of Roger Corman's (and Charles Griffin's) goofy self-parody "Creature from the Haunted Sea." For television, Monte Hellman wrote, produced and directed about 15 minutes of new footage to get the film up to a marketable length including an absurd theme song as performed by the wonderful Betsy Jones-Moreland. These scenes, presumably shot in 16mm, were never intended for theatrical release, but crop to a 16 x 9 aspect ratio (along with the rest of the... Topics: Roger Corman, Charles B.

This is a surreal little movie by Billy Wilder's much-less talented older brother, W. Lee Wilder. It was originally released in a 1:85 aspect ratio. This is an attempt to recreate the original aspect ratio using the best public domain print I could find. The 16mm print seemed to be already slightly cropped and a true 1:85 ratio looked too cramped. This version has been blown-up and cropped at about 1:75, not the correct ratio, but much closer to the intended composition.Killers from... Topics: Killers from Space, 1950s Sci-Fi, W.

This version of Zontar is based on this version. The color in the picture was nicer but the sound was very low. Picture is slightly better. Differences The soundtrack has been remastered with higher volume levels, parametric EQ to help with any high-end cracking, bass boost to the low end, and some de-noising and de-crackling. It's not perfect but it's much better. Combined with the enhanced color it makes for a more enjoyable cheesy film experience. The picture has been slightly enhanced but...
